Freelance 3D Animation

I’m a 3D generalist which means I have a solid knowledge in several areas of 3D animation including modelling, lighting, and animation. My 3D animation ranges in style from photorealistic to highly stylised and graphical. 3D animation I’ve created has been used for products and visualisation, characters, and motion graphics to name a few. From modelling through to rendering I’m able to produce exciting 3D animations where there’s very few limitations to what can be created.

  • Village Cinemas The Nom Noms

    Village Cinemas The Nom Noms

    A group of characters called the Nom Noms were conceived by Melbourne agency Lifelounge for their client Village Cinemas to promote their candy bar products. After initial development these characters were then passed on to us to further refine using  a series of sketches, and then each was modelled, rigged, and textured in 3D for use in animation. In total five characters were created based on candy bar food products – Kernel Corn the Popcorn, Pop the Soda, Koolio the Choctop, Frank the Hotdog, and Salma the Nacho. Once each character was setup in 3D, four different animations were then…

    AFL Stadium and LED Signage Animation

    In 2015 the MCG and Etihad stadium both installed LED signage and we were approached by our regular client AFL Media to develop animated content for several clubs.

  • Telstra Support Videos

    Telstra Support Videos

    A series of 4 animated web videos were created to assist customers with using Telstra’s products and services. The topics of each video were: Monitoring Data Usage, 24×7 App, My Account, Pre-Paid Recharge. These videos were an update on the 2D style videos previously created. To keep consistency across Telstra services the robot butler was replaced with a ‘Carebot’, and the style changed from a 2D look to fully 3D with a wider colour palette which increased the overall production values. The video above is an edited compilation of the 4 videos that were created. You can view each video…

  • Start Running Pico

    Start Running Pico

    Created whilst living in Japan and drawing upon inspiration from surrounding culture and mythology, this animation uses the world of a pop-up book to tell the story. The mechanics of pop-up books were studied and then constructed in 3D space.

  • Melbourne Renegades Stadium Videos

    Melbourne Renegades Stadium Videos

    A series of Big Screen and LED animations were created for Australian Cricket 20-20 Big Bash League team the Melbourne Renegades to be played at their home games at Etihad Stadium. The visual style was adapted from existing print material and an animation concept then was developed for use across a series of videos including player introductions, game milestones, player trivia and more.

  • Western Bulldogs Animations

    Western Bulldogs Animations

    An animated version of the new Western Bulldogs logo was created for the logo launch and to be used as an introduction to their videos and adapted as a title screen for Bulldogs TV. The logo was provided by the Western Bulldogs and different elements of the design were then separated so that they could be individually constructed in the animated sequence. In addition to the logo a motion graphics video was created that explains the different types of memberships available including the seating of each package in Etihad Stadium, and what is included with each membership. The design was…

  • Telstra at your service

    Telstra at your service

    The video above is an edited compilation of the 4 x 1-2 minute videos that were created. These videos have since been updated and the style changed to 3D using the Telstra Carebot. The Telstra ‘at your service’ videos were created as a set of online videos to explain, promote, and highlight the features of several of their online tools and services including Telstra My Account, Telstra 24×7 App, Pre-Paid Recharge, and Data Usage. The videos were created for the agency Significant Others who created the script and many of the visual concepts and sketched storyboards. These storyboards were then…

  • Lifebroker Animations

    Lifebroker Animations

    Insurance company Lifebroker approached me to create 10 short web animated videos, each explaining a different product or service they offer. Their logo leant itself to being adapted as a character, and subsequently a family and other characters were created to explain each service. As many of the videos death with serious topics such as death and disability, the characters were used in a non-literal way to explain each product. The concept for each video was created by Chris Northey, and then developed using a sketched storyboard which was then translated to vibrant 3D animations.   TPD Insurance Video  …
